Rutland Cycles, based in Whitwell, have several cycle touring events to interest you this August.

The events kick off next Tuesday, 6 August, with a ride with Frank Burns followed by a talk about his 4,000km challenge, cycling end-to-end New Zealand and from Sydney to Melbourne in Australia.

Sunday, 11 August sees a Cycle Touring Masterclass covering essential kit and maintenance for cycle touring and a Q&A with cycle touring experts.

On Tuesday, 13 August, Rutland Cycles’ MD talks about a 15,000km crossing of South America from Cape Horn to the Caribbean by bike, and on Thursday, 16 August there’s a screening of Janapar at Museum Cinema, Oakham. It’s a film made by Tom Allen about leaving everything and everyone behind, and setting off on a quest to find the answer to life.

The final event of the month is Bugs, Birds & Bikes, the chance for children to explore Rutland’s wildlife by bike with Anglian Water’s Birdwatching Centre, on Thursday, 29 August.

I trust they've paid Pixar/Disney for use of that image.

yep, Disney could really do with the cash.

But yes, no excuse for it really - you can even Google for freely licensed images, filter by commercial use etc - just do an advanced image search.
